with them before disappearing. >>> they were once bitter political rivals, but president obama is now lavishing praise on his outgoing secretary of state, hillary clinton. the joint interview last night on "60 minutes" was the president's idea. mr. obama said their shared vision for america's role in the world persuaded become a top diplomat and one of his most trusted advisers. >> i'm going to miss her. i wish she was sticking around. a lot of the successes we've had internationally have been because of her hard work. >> in politics and in democracy, sometimes you win elections, sometimes you lose elections. i worked very hard, but i lost. >> clinton, whose term as secretary of state ends this coming friday, refused to answer any questions about her political future and no outright night about 2016. >>> the ice storm that's made a mess out of the middle of the country is moving east just in time for the morning rush hour. yesterday, conditions were a mess as a mixture of ice, snow and freezing rain made travel treacherous in illinois and iowa. a section of interstate 35 was closed fo
interview on cbs's "60 minutes," president obama sat alongside his departing secretary of state, hillary clinton, a one-time political rival who he now describes as one of his close advisors. she says she won't have a run in 2016. neither obama nor clinton were eager to look that far ahead. >> what's the -- i have to ask you, what's the date of the expiration on this endorsement. >> steve, i know -- >> i have to ask that question. i mean, come on. you're sitting here together. everybody in town is talking about it already and the interview -- and this is taking place. >> you know, steve, i've got to tell you, you guys in the press are incore ridgeable. i was literally inaugurated four days ago and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> and i am, as you know, steve, i'm still in politics and i'm forbidden from hearing these. >> if she wants this job, it will be interesting. on foreign policy, president obama defending himself from critics who say the u.s. has not been aggressive enough in using american power abroad. >>> well, moammar gadhafi probably does not agree with t
, that can backfire. this is obama/biden politics going forward now. going outside of washington to try to change public opinion and remake how people think about issues. gun control, as i said, biggest effort ever to try to change the gun control laws. doesn't mean it's going to work, but the president and the vice president are going to try. >> senator feinstein said it well, it's an uphill road. will the administration lower its expectations? you know, maybe concentrate on the background checks and not so much the assault weapon ban? >> the background checks are enormously popular and clearly have a better chance of passage. what it seems based on what vice president biden emphasized yesterday and what some on capitol hill are saying, better to get the so-called low-hanging fruit. better to go for the measures that could build some popularity. and maybe some momentum. pass those and then maybe come back. the president feels passionately about this issue. any parent can look at his face when he talks about newtown and know for him it's personal, and it's important. and the best way to
of politics involved in all this as well, right? >> there is tons of politics. the obama administration has been saying that we really need this power of recess appointments because over the past 2, 3, 4, 5, years, congress has gotten, the republicans in congress have gotten far more partisan. they've gotten much, much more aggressive about preventing confirmation of nlrb appointees and of judicial appointees. and i'm sure that many in the obama administration are really tremendously up set by this decision because it really might seriously block their ability to name the people that they feel under the constitution they have the right to nominate. >> all right, steven greenhouse of the "new york times," thanks so much for joining us. >> nice to be here. >> brown: coming up-- location reports from two newshour correspondents: margaret warner in jerusalem, and ray suarez in davos, switzerland. plus, the advances against islamist rebels in mali; zero waste in san francisco; and shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's kwame holman. >> holman: president obama chose his
at these legal pieces. now, the political piece of this, which is really interesting, is that the obama administration has a huge rule of law problem. they have got a rule of law problem moving back, meaning that the bush administration officials that were responsible for the illegality in the torture are not being prosecuted. they have a rule of law problem moving forward, which is they're trying to get these detainees through the eye of a political needle called the military commissions and they're trying to figure out what can we electrothrow on them? >> the process has been constructed around the paul 6 and the court decisions. >> let's make a broader pointing. i don't agree that rule of law has been thrown out the window. this is how it's important to get this right. as imperfect as the process has been under this president and the last one, if we don't get this right, if we don't get a tribunal process right, if we don't get the mechanisms right for assessing guilt and innocence among these people, that the battlefieldin sent i've is not to capture but to kill. that's something th
a >> -- >> bret: a.b.? >> president obama moved on this and it was calculated politically to catch up for the last ten years in the country. one of the biggest changes we have witnessed, swiftest changes we have seen in our society. politician have trouble catching up with that but they read the polls and they know what is going on. the boy scouts are not endeavoring to change their long-standing tradition so much to be because they want to welcome homosexuals and be inclusive, as they do not feel they can survive as an exclusive organization anymore. they have lost members in protest. they are not getting enough new members. they are losing financial support. they believe that this is something that they have to do for their survival. surely the question of how you integrate the boy scouts, that is an extremely complicated matter. two of the largest contributors are the mormon and the catholic church. you have manpower and financial money coming from places that don't support homosexuality there. >> they are doing this for a reason. their members say it's because they are losing their ability to
. so there's the political piece with congress and there's george bush, but here's what the obama administration can and should do. they're in the position to decide whether they are going to appeal this court ruling about conspiracy, right, the nonwar crimes, crimes. >> in which a court vacated a conviction. >> the obama administration should not appeal that conviction -- that decision because what that would do is it would move that whole process forward. it would give them a political footing to say, look, either we are a rule of law presidency or we are not and we have to abide by this. let's shift these trials to civilian courts and take the political heat on these things. we'll still get immigration passed, we'll still get gun control passed, but the state of our democracy, the foundation of our democracy rests on these next few days. >> i interviewed in january a famous detainee at guantanamo because of one of the most supreme court cases bears his name. when we come back, i want to play a little clip to remind people of the human stakes here. you talked about political pro
't touch. this political negligence suggests that obama has chosen to ignore negative budget projections, credit downgrades, falling revenues and perpetual increases in mandatory spending. instead, the president is teeing up partisan legislative battles with republicans in hopes of -- but as a measurement of the president's seriousness, his second inaugural address can only be seen as a grand failure that missed yet another historic opportunity to call americans together in the name of shared sacrifice. and richard haass, there is another opportunity, which would be the state of the union which i'm sort of banking on. >> traditionally inaugurals are the poetry, and then the state of the union becomes the prose. and the president did not prepare for educate the american people about some of the tough decisions to come, particularly on medicare and medicaid. so the real question going forward for the state of the union is whether he essentially addresses that. and whether he -- because we've still got more than, i think, more than $2 trillion in serious cuts to be made to entitlements over
'll be live in cairo. >> how could the political unrest in egypt impact president obama's second term? you're watching andrea mitchell reports only on msnbc. [ coughs ] [ angry gibberish ] i took something for my sinuses, but i still have this cough. [ male announcer ] a lot of sinus products don't treat cough. they don't?

[ angry gibberish ] sdwleerchlgts as violence continues for the fifth straight day across the country. an opposition leaders have rejected president morsi's sunday night call for dialogue. so far the political crisis has left 50 dead and many more injured. nbc's amman mojadin joins from yous cairo. is there any resolution in sight, or is this thing still escalating? >> reporter: well, right now the situation remains extremely tense. in fact, a short while ago you can probably see it in those pictures tahrir square. they set this on fire as thousands cheered on. in the cities of -- in fact, in abou
, he campaigned extensively for president obama back in october, in fact. >> sure. >> new york magazine, john heilemann, wrote this fascinating piece about the relationship describing it as a political marriage of convenience of sorts. he wrote that, quote, if obama wins, it may be because the former president saved his presidency, but what exactly do the clintons get in return? has there been or was there at some point a sort of a wink, wink, nod, nod, a handshake of sorts between the two? >> i can't imagine that that's possible at all. i think what you saw with president clinton was a commitment to stand up for what he believed in in this country, and he believed that barack obama would make the best president for our country at the time. folks who want to engage in conspiracy theories and anything other than one former president certainly understands better than anyone else what a current president has done and what it took to achieve that, that's all it was. >> kiki, there have been some questions about secretary clinton's health. is she healthy enough for a presidential run? >> i
of $250. adt. always there. >>> real politics now. as expected president obama called on congress to overhaul broken immigration laws. in a speech he praised a plan unveiled by eight senators. he stressed the similarities between his vision and theirs. >> that's what comprehensive immigration looks like, smarter enforcement, a pathway to earn citizenship, improvements in the legal immigration system, so that we continue to be a magnet for the best and the brightest all around the world. >> president obama also sounded a warning, though, saying the time to act is now, and if congress can't deliver, he's going to step in. >> the foundation for bipartisan action is already in place. and if congress is unable to move forward in a timely fashion, i will send up a bill based on my proposal and insist that they vote on it right away. >> bipartisan plan he's talking about comes with some crucial strings that contains provisions for paths to citizenship but only if certain conditions are first met. chief among those making sure the border is secure before any legislative action can take pl
. later, president obama vows action on climate change. what can realistically be done in this political environment? we will ask national journal reporter coral davenport. we will be right back. >> ♪ ♪ [video clip] >> we have created a platform that we call a digital feedback system. a main component of the platform are an integral sensors that turns on when it's all it-- when you swallow it. it collects information about the medicines that you take and your heart rate and body rate and temperature. a wellness matrix. then it communicates via radio with a cell phone that you carry. they process the data and send it back to you as an application that can help you manage your health. >> we are at a point where we have had all these incremental and amazing changes over the last five years. now we are poised to really make some great leaps in complex diseases. our understanding of cancer in the last five years has forced the last 25. the next 10 years will really take us through some amazing advances. >> the latest advances in health technology from the international consumer electronic
of the successes we've had internationally have been because of her hard work. >> in politics and in democracy, sometimes you win elections. sometimes you lose elections. and i worked very hard but i lost and then president obama asked me to be secretary of state and i said yes. and why did he ask me and why did i say yes? because we both love our country. >> one of the biggest challenges on secretary clinton's watch has been the bloody conflict in syria. that civil war has also produced a growing refugee crisis as syrians try to escape. just yesterday the u.n. said that a record number of syrians, 30,000, had arrived in a refugee camp in neighboring jordan since the beginning of this year alone. that camp is where we sent nbc's stephanie gosk to take a first-hand look. >> reporter: it's just before sunset and the syria/jordan border is deceptively quiet. as night falls, syrian refugees are on the move. day time crossings are dangerous. the jordanian military says this video it shot recently shows syrian forces firing at a family with small children as they run to the border. so the refugees c
: there are few people we think we know more about than president barack obama and outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton, and everyone has an opinion-- about their politics, their marriages, and a rivalry that is one of the richest in american history. on friday we had the opportunity to sit down with the two of them side by side. the white house offered us 30 minutes, barely enough time to scratch the surface of their complicated personal and professional relationship, let alone discuss their policies on iran and israel, russia and china, egypt and libya. there has been much speculation about their evolution from bitter opponents to partners in the corridors of power and the motivation for doing this interview. now you can be the judge. this is very improbable. this is not an interview i ever expected to be doing. but i understand, mr. president, this was your idea. why did you want to do this together, a joint interview? >> obama: well, the main thing is, i just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you, because i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of sta
more aggressively? we being the u.s. government? >> we had a political narrative, the obama administration did, of the george bush equivalent of mission accomplished. it was job well done. we wanted the narrative to say everything is okay in libya. it's been a wonderful success story. she did have time to go through the tv shows when it was a victory lap about the libya, the overthrow of gaddafi, she has better things to do on sunday mornings than explain this failure in leadership and failure in accountability and failure of our intelligence or what happened. we still don't have a clear picture. >> congresswoman thanks so much for coming in. >> thank you. >> coming up, perfume for babies? sounds slightly ridiculous, right? wrong. coming to a store near you. >> then are you ready for some football? clayton has the gadgets and gizmos to take your super bowl party to a whole new level. i wish he had the nachos. >> welt. >> you ready for some football. the countdown is on for the super bowl. lucky for you clayton has the gantle you need to make your party teched out. >> nertd -
't be misled here. here's something this debate is not about, wls obama wants to use immigration as a way 0 club republicans or get a bill. it's not a question. the idea that anyone outside of political partisans believe that the president doesn't want to actually sign legislation now to fulfill a campaign promise is a bit naive. maybe that was the calculus in 2010. it was not the calculus this time. sure the president is using campaign tactics to pressure congress but he wants the legislative win. he already got the political win. it's called a second term. finally, friday is hillary clinton's last day in office. now that her successor has been confirmed, she is talking to the press, including andrea mitchell in a series of exit interviews. yesterday clinton weighed in on what may be the most underreports story in washington, the unrest taking place in egypt right now. clinton stood by one of the most consciousal foreign policy decisions the administration made that gets little little -- the ouster of mubarak. she responded to the head of the army who said that the state could fall part. >
been identified. and the morning you see the obama administration interested in action rather than politics, you're going to have a different kind of tone. but we also should be looking at two things. what are the psychiatric problems and to what degree does the federal privacy law make it almost impossible to identify people who have psychological problems? i suspect we're going to find this tragic situation in alabama right this minute involves somebody with a deep psychological problem. and then, second, i think we have to look at, what is happening in big cities, where it is, in fact, largely pistols that are involved, and largely gangs that are involved? >> let me ask you about another big issue that we've been talking about a lot this week, the issue of immigration. there's been a big bipartisan push, you know, this week, including republicans, marco rubio, john mccain, talking about this comprehensive immigration reform. but, clearly, not all republicans are on board with this latest push. listen here to senator david vitter. >> i love and respect marco. i think he's just am
doesn't want to be marginalized, but people who look at politics are looking at four years down the pike. donald trump, what could be the motivation here? what is going on? >> look, they came together, i mean, this came a long way because if you remember, obama called them racist, bill and hillary, they were racists and the anger was unbelievable. in one way you could say it's the nice they're obviously together. i think the more interesting thing is what's going on with "60 minutes." they're an investigatory group. i've seen some great work done from them, but not done with respect to president obama. it's like the laughing and having fun, this is like a "60 minute" interview. what happened to mike wallace? mike call lace is spinning in his grave, i think. >> brian: the next story after that showed you why there is "60 minutes," because of the incredible story of lance armstrong. >> that's true. >> gretchen: could it be, if you look at this from a political point of view, they did not like each other when they were running against each other, obviously. >> beyond not like. >> gretchen:
obama money bunny, the man with a very long title bill burton. >> a lot of hats. >> a lot of hats. politico congressional reporter jake sherman is making his debut with us. msnbc political analyst and former dnc communications drishgt karen finney is here, and mother jones washington bureau chief david corn. channelling the spirit of rick perry, will the republican party finally have a heart when it comes to immigration? president obama is en route to las vegas where he will outline his immigration priorities just hours from now which comes amid signs of bipart sfwlan agreement on the issue in the senate. for senate leaders it has been a swift path from this attitude -- >> drug and human smuggling, home invasions, murder. >> we're outmanned. with all the illegals in america, more than half come through arizona. >> complete the dang fence. >> to this attitude. >> we have been too content for too long to allow individuals to mow our lawn, serve our food, clean our homes, and even watch our children while not affording them any of the benefits that make our country so great. >> but e
the political implications of what happens. robert, is this no matter how it looks a win for the white house? is this a win for president obama? does this become next to probably health care reform one of his lasting legacies? >> yes however i think it is a net neutral for both parties at the end of the day. the white house will claim it as they should because they are driving the conversation. republicans are also going to claim credit as they should because they are going to say we got this through the house and senate. >> i guess we could aargue that if republicans and democrats aren't talking about impgration reform in a year that is a win for the gop, as well. >> i love talking about politics as much as the next guy. on this issue this is a win for the country. you cannot have 13 million people in the shadows and think that is good for the future of the country. too many young people worried about the future. that is not the way a country needs to be run. in terms of the political consequences or the benefits, both sides i think can make the argument that they benefit. at the end of the
that and what marco rubio said. there is not one consistent strategy. remember a few years ago president obama was boxed in by immigration. he had put the enforcement into effect, but he hadn't sort of made the system more gentle, more welcoming. politically he was in a bad spot with latino voters. a ton of pressure. now the funny thing about the situation is that politically, just politically, this is a win for him either way. >> even the dream act was there. there was a question as to what was going to happen with that. now through executive order he is somer assaulting. >> you have bobby jindahl saying we can't be the stupid party anymore. who wins out? >> they're all wrong. they're talking about the problem with the party -- the problem with the party is policy. seven days after the election, the ohio legislature, i assume with the blessing of governor kasich passes -- defeated in mississippi. i mean, what were they thinking? what are they thinking? i think they've got to look at themselves and say we've got to control the tea party aspect of this party. we've got to get back to taking pos
. this decision said the recess appointments as they have been done not just by president obama, but all presidents in recent decades. they are all unconstitutional. >> sorry this a political decision? >> this is the question that is hard to answer. these are three very conservative republican judges. the political implications of the decision are clear. for a republican anti-democrat and can i say that that was the motivation of the judges? i can't. >> can we assume it's the u.s. supreme court that will consider this or leave it hanging? >> they have to. it's too important of a decision and think the supreme court will take it. >> this is an automatic. >> almost automatic. very difficult to predict because this is an aggressive conservative majority on the supreme court. citizens united and campaign finance. the second amendment and gun control. this court has been aggressively conservative and it could be affirmed by the supreme court. >> what are does it say about president obama? >> the d.c. circuit court of appeals that decided this case often called the second most important court
recall, in the november election, president obama got about 70% of the obama vote while romney got about 27%. connell: we are bringing brad blakeman and. doesn't senator mccain pretty much sum up the politics of this? >> absolutely. the smart thing is it is not only republicans. they now form an alliance in the senate with democrats. we have to be careful that is aligned does not work into a super committee. what the senate needs to do is lay the groundwork smartly before the president's speech and then sub this out to the committees in the senate in order to do their work. whether it is on border and homeland security, taxation and then the house has to do the same. connell: i want to ask you a question in a moment on what the republicans need to hold out on and not give in on no matter what. all all of the attention, so far, has been given on a pathway to citizenship. a lot of the ceos are very big on this. that should be the thing that the republicans are pushing war than anything else. >> absolutely. we should be providing scholarships and places and our universities for the blind th
billion in your corner. raising money for you. he's also a supporter of president obama. so it's interesting the way he seems to be perhaps a post partisan, young politically engaged young man. he's only, what, 28 years old. >> yeah. >> at this point. so i watch the -- i watched "the social network." zuckerberg may not be the most charming guy but has deep pockets. >> having grown up in new jersey, i know the holy trinity of what chris christie needs. you have bruce springsteen, jon stewart perhaps, and bon jovi. who needs zuckerberg when you got these guys, right, maria? >> you know what, i agree with amy. when you have somebody in your corner that's worth billions of dollars, it's not a bad thing. and i -- >> he's not new jersey. >> but you know what, i think it bodes well for the future of bipartisanship, randi. because yes, mark zuckerberg has supported democrats, supported president obama, but i also think it shows chris christie and what an interesting republican he is. and we'll see what happens moving forward. a lot of talk about him in 2016. i know that he's, you know,
, and politics is a contact sport. it was a very, very tough campaign between senator clinton and senator obama, as you portrayed in those past clips. however, i think the genuineness of their relationship came through in that interview. there clearly was regard and respect by both. they worked together. i think they've had an extraordinary run at it in terms of foreign policy. i think secretary clinton has supported the president. i think that's reestablished our standing around the world. i think they managed an exceedingly complex, fast moving and difficult situations in a very skilled manner. i think she gets high marks, soledad, both from republicans and democrats, and from the american people and internationally. >> so she talked about how hard it is on the spouse, and he talked about how hard it is on the staff. so i guess my question would be is bill clinton kind of over it? you've known him since you were 5 years old. he's been very supportive of president obama. critical, i think it's fair to say, but has he also moved on? or is the spouse always struggling? >> i think both made good
. they should be listening to "political insiders." we have said this before, governor, rather, pick bill clinton pick helped obama immensely at the convention. he won the election for obama. i think, tonight, this is part of the zeal, the pay off has been a long time in coming and pat jokingly mentioned, but i don't biden who should be the loyal vice president, who was shaking hands at the inaugural parade, he is out. >> that is what loyalty buys you. >> to clinton's credit, they turned the situation that presented the country and hillary clinton with --. >> i said she should be the nominee before. >> that performance i have to tell you, i was ill after watching six hours of this. >> she will be the nominee. >> maybe she will be president. >>gregg: got to go. gentleman, thank you very much. you can get more from our insiders each monday at 10:30 a.m. eastern live and they will be back here next sunday and follow them on twitter. clear technology can do that. who can tell me the third life cycle stage of the frog ? it can take a sick kid to school. nathan. tadpole. and help ensure a const
